  2. Nice one, I lol'd all the way through...
    So many great lines in there, but I think my favourite was "Now, which one of these bikes makes you look cool?"
  3. This guy raises a pet peeve of mine. Unfortunately, he's advocating digital consoles, whereas I'm against them, specifically when the speedometer and occasionally tachometer are incorporated into them.

    Firstly, they're tech for tech sake, another LCD matrix to crack or fail. Secondly, they can be hard to see in direct sunlight (e.g. the digital tachometer on the 04-06 FZ6, subsequently ditched). Thirdly, I prefer good old fashioned analogue dials because they give a better indication of rate of acceleration, and provide a bit of a thrill in going to sides of the dial you've never been to before.
  4. Aaaah, front number plates.

    Cool video though. I love those tiny Asian bikes, they're so much fun considering how little they cost (70,000 Rupee = AU$1,500). Pity they charge so much for 125s here.
  5. I was reading your post in James May's voice - you really are him, aren't you??!!

    I was wondering... Thanks!
